Angie is a DBA Administrator in Stephenville. When she wanted to take charge of her health, she began researching weight-loss surgeries. Having tried diets, she thought this was the only way to lose weight. In the end, she gave exercise and healthy eating another try before committing to surgery.
With the help of a personal trainer, Angie learned and practiced safe exercises for a month. After her month of training, she continued those workouts and added variety with gym classes and evening walks. Two months into exercise, Angela signed up for FMC’s Biggest Loser style competition for Stephenville, using Vitality to track progress. She also joined the Naturally Slim program. These programs and a holistic view of well-being (instead of always checking the scale) helped her feel motivated, guided, and inspired.
Over six months, Angie has lost 60 pounds. Despite the highs and lows, she feels confident and appreciative of her coworkers’ encouragement. She is excited to keep pursuing a healthy lifestyle.
